Sex education lessons in which pupils as young as eight will be told ‘all genders’ have periods were yesterday condemned as unnecessarily confusing for young children. The classes follow guidelines that were issued to teachers to help them avoid offending girls who identify as boys.

But critics described the guidelines as inappropriate and another example of political correctness gone mad.

The teacher guidance, from Brighton & Hove City Council, states: ‘Trans boys and men and non-binary people may have periods.’ It says language about menstruation must be inclusive of ‘all genders’ and orders that ‘bins for used period products are provided in all toilets’ for children.

But Tory MP David Davies described it as ‘insanity’ for teachers to be explaining the concept of transgender boys having periods to eight-year-olds.

‘Learning about periods is already a difficult subject for children that age, so to throw in the idea girls who believe they are boys also have periods will leave them completely confused,’ he added.

What they really mean is that girls who think they should be boys, or who want to be boys, have periods, not that boys have periods.

The emergence of the guidance comes after it was reported that a state secondary in Brighton has 40 pupils who ‘do not identify as [the] gender presented at birth’.

After reading that line maybe the school, it's teachers, and the way the impressionable kids are being taught needs looking into.

Oh, I get it. Well, if that's the case, the OP is a little bit untruthful...probably intentionally so to get attention.
